in this country, almost one in four american citizens is part of this younger millennial generation. >> woodruff: that fact is not lost on the candidates. last month president obama came to columbus and used the buckeye football stadium in an analogy to describe mitt romney as out of touch. >> under my opponent's tax plan, 106 fans at the game would get an average tax cut of $250,000," and about 100,000 fans would have to pay for it. and by the way, the ones who would get the tax break are the guys in the box seats. >> woodruff: two days earlier, romney was on another ohio college campus. >> you're going to see rising take-home pay again. you're going to have young people that come out of colleges like this that can actually get jobs. today, half the kids coming out of college can't find work, or college-level work. this is... this is not the american experience, the americ dream they planned. >> woodruff: whatever the arguments are on and around college campuses, the larger challenge facing the obama camp is the toll the economy has taken on the younger generation. many have come of age seeing
this on television or read it in the newspaper. ask yourself if what romney and ryan are saying about obama and joe biden is true about medicare, why would the american medicare association endorsed our position. why would the hospital association. why would aarp in dorset? -- endorse it? they have no credibility on this issue. secondly what they do not tell you is equally as important as what they tell you. they do not tell you what they would do about medicare. the first thing they would do, if they took the action they are proposing to take were they to win on january of next year, you would eliminate the new benefit. $800 more for prescription drugs, wellness visits. it would also move medicare trust fund to insolvency in 2016, three years from now. what they really do not want to talk about any more, they do not want to tell you they are not for medicare. they are for vouchercare. this is a fact. they say it will not affect anybody on medicare now. it will not kick in for 10 years. if you are 55 years old, it will kick in. a couple of years ago, the intellectual gravelling of the right came up
